An annual triangle, offshore sailing regatta helps bridge the gap between American and Cuban people. The ocean is the greatest road there is and this year’s fleet used it to experience Cuba, which is trapped in time, but on the verge of great change.
We’ve assembled just a few bits and pieces from all the footage taken May 16th thru May 19th during the Havana Challenge event from Key West Florida to Havana Cuba. this is the first fully licensed sailing event between these two neighboring cities in over 50 years. What you see here is just a sample of the collectable DVD that is currently in the works.
The Key West Wrecker’s Cup Race Series has run it’s 32nd year in 2014. A series of 4 monthly races (to the rum) with “basically” no rules provides great fun and entertainment for all. If you don’t have a boat you can charter a seat on one of the classic schooners that run regularly out of Key West’s Historic Seaport and Schooner Wharf Bar. The races run the last Sunday of each month, January thru April. This is a strait out drag race to the reef in the tradition of the early Key West Wreckers. First to the wreck gets first negotiation rights (if they can fend off the rest) to salvage the wreck.
